Twenty five people who attended the February 22 announcement of future plans for Book Night were reminded that all Coffman endeavors belong to the whole community. Then they were invited to share the honors as the 23-year Book Night tradition continues.
Victoria Tirrel outlined The Plan that grew out of a community survey, an evening of discussion, and the resulting outline drawn up by volunteers Kendall, Tirrel and Katie Weiblen. Then she issued the invitation.
Then came a brief, yet spirited drama–“probably more a skit,” said Kendall, “to help you, the audience, see how the new plan will work.” She and Jean Larson, as partner and reviewer, pointed to two instruction sheets that will guide each reviewer and planning partner. Six other actors with scripted lines demonstrated the united effort involved in planning and producing Book Night (and almost every 1666 Coffman program): Dottie Waltz, Barb Gaiser, Fred Waltz, Helen Tang, Vern Weckwerth (and Al Cecka, in absentia).
In the next several weeks, sign up opportunities will be available at various gatherings for readers who would like to review at a future Book Night and for those who like the idea of being their planning partners.
